Quick update to y'all:

Due to my business, and TF2, Pearl 2 will not be out for like, I don't know.
So, to help everyone's crashing issues, I copy/pasted the preference saving/reading code from my current build of Pearl 2, into the old Pearl 1.2. This should fix all crashing at start up issues, and allows Pearl to save the window location when closing and opening.
I also copy/pasted a few data handling algorithms to make this version of Pearl, 1.3, a bit faster than 1.2 (probably around, uh, almost twice as fast when converting).
Unfortunately, the new code seems to have killed converting full SP maps to demo, so you'll have to wait until Pearl 2 for that.

Enjoy this quick update, I suppose.

I haven't given any updates to this in awhile, so he's one:

Pearl has been completely rebuilt for scratch, everything.
Done so far:

•Base code for handling map saves, settings saves, and such complete and working perfectly
•New converting code and rebuilding code complete and working perfectly
•New SBSP handling code complete and working perfectly
•Halo Full to Demo, and Halo Demo to full working

To be done:

•SCNR, COLL, and animation handling code
•Internalization code
•CE map conversion (to and from) code
•Self-updating code

The BSP issue should be fixed with the new code. What do you mean by "rebuilding converted full SP maps"?

Meaning you are unable to convert full SP maps, or Eschaton cannot rebuild them?

yeah it's probably an eschaton problem. yes eschaton can not rebuild them. i always wondered why. even when i rebuild full maps i sometimes have to skip the opening cutscene or it crashes.

You and your rebuilding from scratch. I thought I was the only one who liked doing that :P

Pearl's code has been scraped and rebuilt a total of five times since its inception. It used to be named "Maynard," by-the-way.
